NACCTP: Treating Diverse Populations
with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LP, LAC, MAC, RN, ACS
DESCRIPTION: Addiction counselors work to improve people’s lives by identifying and treating the effects of substance abuse disorders. Addiction counselors may work with people from the general public – and they may also specialize in specific populations, such as gender specific, language or culture specific, race or ethnicity identified groups, persons involved in the criminal justice system, families, older adults, LGBTQIA+ clients, veterans, people impacted by the opioid overuse epidemic, people experiencing homelessness, and many more. This course provides a more in-depth overview of the diverse populations in the addiction treatment realm. Additionally, this and all addiction counselor classes seek to enhance the ability of the counselor to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic, and socioeconomic diversity.
